I loved Arrogant Bastard, and was excited to try Double Bastard, because I thought I would like something even more intense. However, I did not enjoy this beer. It was far too much for me. Given the flavor of these two beers, maybe something called Bastard and a Half would be better for me.

I was expecting more hoppy like Arrogant Bastard. Flavor is more like an American Barleywine. I still prefer Double Dog as a benchmark for a double IPA.

What a fantastic beer. Very Malty presence accompanied by a pleasant hop bitterness along the lines of grapefruit. Also smoother than I had thought at 11%.
